The Situation Room initiated a video review in the Blackhawks/Flames game to further examine Brandon Saad's wraparound play at 9:16 of the first period. The next stoppage of play occurred at 11:34, when Calgary's Lance Bouma shot the puck into the Chicago net in a legal fashion. Video review confirmed that Saad's shot at 9:16 did not cross the goal line, therefore Calgary's goal stands.
That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
